30 weeks!

  • How far along: 30 weeks and 5 days :)
  • Baby is the size of a: Head of a Lettuce (18 in, 3.2 lbs.)
  • Total weight gain/loss: 10 lbs.
  • The bump: seriously so round and hard. I love my bump, I'm so happy that I'm so comfortable and happy with my body.
  • Symptoms: Some minor Braxton hicks, nothing terrible. some sciatic pain but besides that I feel great! I've been taking iron supplements and wow they have made the biggest difference. I thought I was tired because Charlie was going threw a growth spurt or something because I woke up tired, I wanted to nap all day and getting everyday things done around the house really felt so hard. I've been taking them for 2 weeks now and I feel the biggest difference and have so much more energy!
  • Food cravings: Apple pie :) we FINALLY got some from Cosco and I'm loving it:)
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: nope
  • Sleep: Same as always. I either sleep great or wake up on and off all night.
  • What I miss: nothing really.
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: off :(
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: Charlie, still need to pick a middle name...
  • Gender: a beautiful baby girl!
  • Movement: oh baby does she move. I love it. I see her move constantly I just love love love it. especially around the evening around 8pm she really starts going crazy. Bella doesn't really care to feel or look but my niece Olivia put her hand on my belly and felt a huge kick and her face was priceless. I don't think she was expecting to really feel her.
  • Maternity Clothes: im loving my maternity pants and comfy pants lol. my shirts are still fitting pretty well.
  • Labor Signs: none
  • Best Moment of the week: oh man there was truly sooo many. but obviously when Doug and I got sealed to Bella <3 comment-3--="">
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Charlie's room! its almost done and finally not a clutter. I organized her clothes in sizes. I just need to hang a few things up more. I'm also excited for my baby shower :) my sister is so excited and making it so fun! plus I cant wait to see all my friends and family. I'm also excited for the holidays and to enjoy them one last time with just Bella.

    these last two weeks have been very exciting and filled with so many activities. my sister in law Tami had her baby shower, we got sealed to Bella, Doug and I celebrated our third anniversary and had a mini vacation just the two of us, and I was able to attend my friend Taren's sealing which by the way was amazing! I was so happy to be there for her and I wish everyone knew Taren and her story because her family is beautiful and she deserves to be this happy! I am full of joy :)
    I started going to the doctors every two weeks too but I alternate between seeing my doctor and my nurse practioner every other visit though. I saw my nurse practioner Velma today and she said she was very happy with how healthy I looked. that my blood pressure was great and so was my weight which made me feel good. baby girls heartbeat was in the 140's as usual and she said she was measuring right on schedule. I asked her if I would just see the on call doctor if I went into labor on Christmas and she said yes but I could schedule to be induced a week early which is December 22 if I wanted. I told her I would think about it and talk to Doug about it. At first I was excited to have her before Christmas and enjoy this beautiful newborn baby in 9 weeks but after talking to Doug and thinking it over I realized we'd most likely get discharged on Christmas eve. I would feel pressured to go to our usual Christmas activities but I know when I have Charlie I want to be able to go home and enjoy our new baby and simply focus on her not on the Christmas hussle and bussle. also having one last Christmas with only Bella will be great. really though its not up to me, she might come that day or on Christmas on her own but I wont make her:)
